Should we be using repo?


(Dave Hylands) #1

Should we consider using repo to manage our set of repositories?

Then we can create cross-repository branches and more easily update a set of local repositories.

If you have proposals for cross-repo management, you should very quickly put together a RFC for issue 13. The rules for RFCs are here.

Since everybody who took part in the conversation is basically in agreement, I believe that @jlorenzo is planning to close the conversation soon and proceed with the one-repo multi-crate plan (which I personally believe is near ideal).

Having a single repo is even better,

I’ve just had lots and lots of grief having multiple repos and not having things in sync.

Only for the sake of discussing (because we basically agreed on the 1
repo / several crates solution), I don’t get what repo brings over cargo
? It seems to me Cargo.toml brings everything repo brings. Except
possibly for non-rust stuff like the openzwave library ?
